Russia Walks
Out 23rd Time

BANGKOK, May 9.

Soviet Russia to-day walked
out of another United Nations
body when a Committee of the
Economic Commission for Asia and
the Far East (ECAFE) to-day
opposed a proposal to admit the
Communist Government of China
instead of the Chinese Nationalist
delegate.

The walkout was made from the
opening of the Committee of In-
dustry and Trade after it had re-
jected what was Communist
China’s first direct attempt to
enter a United Nations Organisa-
tion.

The Chinese Communist radio
had earlier announced the ap-
pointment of Chi Choa-Tung .s
Chinese Peoples’ Republic dele-
gate at the meeting.

Russia has now walked out of
23 United Nations bodies, includ-
ing all the important onés exéept
the General Assembly.

to the British Union Oil Com-

The Act provides that the lessor
and the lessee are to be compensa-
ted for the vesting of the rights
in this well in the Government
but as the terms of the compensa-
tion must necessarily take some
time to arrange, the Government
wrote to the British Union Oil
Company on the 28th of April,
1950, after the Act was proclaimed
asking them if they would be good
enough to continue to operate the
natural gas well pending discus-
sions on compensation.

The Government réceived
reply

no
to this letter for several

|days, but on the 5th of May, 1950,

a letter was received saying that
they could not continue to opera‘e
the well after the 20th of May un-
less certain conditions were
accepted.

Before the Government could
reply to the letter, another com-
munication was received from the
British Union Oil Company en-
closing a copy of a letter to them
from the Honourable J. D.
Chandler, M.L.C., claiming that
the British Union Oil Company
were trespassers and giving them
notieé to quit within seven days.

The British Union Oil Company
statéd that this would require
cutting off the supply -» May 10th.

Solicitor Instructed

The Government immediately
instructed thé King’s Solicitor to
get in touch with Mr. Chandler
and point out to him that as the
Act fully provided for compensa-
tion both to the lessor and the
lessee, there was no necessity for
precipitate action and to request
him, in the public interest, to
withdraw the notice to quit so as
to enable the whole matter of
compensation to be discussed in a
calm atmosphere’ without the
threat of the disruption of an im1
portant public service hanging
over the negotiations.

The King’s Solicitor was further
instructed to inform the British
Union Oil Company and Mr.
Chandler that the Government
were willing to negotiate on the
basis that a new lease of the
ratural gas well should be granted
by Government to the British
Union Oil Compny on the same
terms as the old lease and that
(he British Union Oil Company
should continue to pay royalties
to the lessor at the same rate
as in the past,

Necessary Authority

This proposal would, if accept-
ed, restore the status quo for all
practical purposes, In addition
a letter has been written to the
British Union Oil Company, giv-
ing them the necessary authority
under Section 3 of the Petroleum
Act, 1950; to continue operating
the Turner’s Hall Natural Gz
well pending the outcome of
negotiations and a copy of this
letter has been forwarded to the
Attorney of Turner’s Hall with a
request that, in the circumstances,
he should withdraw the notice to
qujt. It is hoped that as result
of the proposals put forward by
the Government, the natural gas
supply will not be interrupted,
and it will be found possible to
arrive at the solution satisfac-
tory to all concerne|

to-day listed nine countries
“which have a right to member-

come members: Albania, Austria,
Bulgaria, Finland, Hungary, Italy,
Ireland, Portugal and Rumania.

Mr. Lie said “if they were aa- |
mitted, the voice of Europe in the!
United Nations would be stronger |
and the chancés of bridging the!
differences between Eastern and/

estern Europe would be im-
proved. |

Mr Lie said that the non-mem-!
bership of these nine countries
meant that almost as many Eu-
ropean countries have not been
admitted to the United Nations us
are members,

The Secretary General was
laying the foundation stone of a
new wing to the Palais des Na-
tions, European Office of the
United Nations and old League of

He said “naturally this occasion
recalls the days when the Palais!

LANDY DE MONTBRUN.

They Came, Played and
Conquered

POKE to Landy de Montbrun

yesterday and he told me that
his troupe of Trinidad artistes,
who played here so successfully
last week returned to Trinidad on
Sunday.

Landy, after a week of imitat-
ing animals, singing like a lady
and making wise cracks has al-
most completely lost his voice.
Still, in his hoarse whisper he had
me laughing during our entire
conversation. He expects to re-
turn to Trinidad on Saturday.
Clifford Corbin is the only other
member of the troupe still here,
he is on annual leave,

Allan Jones, who arrived a few
days late for thé opening of the
show certainly went over well
here with his powerful baritone
voice.

They covered almost the entire
island, playing at several of the
schools, clubs, cinemas and also at
Speightstown, 4

Sport Commentator

HO should I bump into on

Broad Street yesterday but
Ken Laughlin, one of Trinidad’s
leading spott commentators, and
a keen follower of all forms of
sport in the W.I,

Ken is here with his wife for
about six weeks’ holiday and they
are staying at Cacrabank.

He gave the commentaries on
the Barbados-Trinidad Water Polo
Tests played in Trinidad in early
January, which were followed so
closely in Barbados.

Ken also gives a weekly Satur-
day night Sports Talk ove: Radio
Trinidad and during his stay here
he expects to make three record-
ings for this programme, especial-
ly of the Barbados-Tran juility
Tennis Matches which will be
commencing here in a few days.

Also a referee of first class foot-
ball in Trinidad, he hopes to do a
hit of refereeing here.

Hope to See Cricket

R. Milton Seale, and his
brother-in-law Mr, Frank
Proverbs told me shortly before
they left en route for England
late last week, that they hoped to
see the West Indies in action
during their six weeks’ stay in
England.

Returning In November

R. and Mrs, Reg Myer after

six months’ holiday in Bar-
bados will be returning to England
by the “Golfito” on Thursday. His
wife, the Hon., Mrs. Elsie Myer
is the daughter of the first Lord

Swaythling.
Last winter they were in
Tobago and they came over to

spend Christmas in Barbados.
Since then they have been coming
here and they hope to return in
November,

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE



The New Headmaster
RINITY term of_the Antigua
Grammar school opened on

Monday with a new headmaster,
Mr. John Freeland Foote, M.A.
(Cambridge). Mr. Foote was born
in Antigua, attended the Gram-
mar School for several years be-
fore he went to Dover College
and then to Cambridge where he
took Law and History in 1933. He
always preferred teaching and has
had considerable experience in
English schools.

At the outbreak of the last war
he left Maiden Englegh near
Reading and was second in‘charge
of Anti-Gas Defence at Worthing.
From 1941-1946 Mr. Foote was at-
tached tq R.A.F. Bomb Disposal,
and 1946-1947 he again resumed
his teaching career and was at St.
Ronans Hawhurst Preparatory
School from whence he accepted
a position on the staff of the An-
tigua Grammar School.

The school is very fortunate in
having secured Mr. Foote’s ser-
vices especially as he is an old
boy of the school who loves the
-sland although the greater part
of his life has been spent in Eng-

land. Mr. Foote’s ancestors came }.

to Antigua in 1760 from Ferman-
agh, Ireland, attached to the regi-
ment stationed at Shirley Heights
and he is the sixth generation of
a Foote to live and work in An-
tigua. He has taken up residence
at the school with Mrs. Foote and
their son Richard. There will be
240 boys on the roll and it is pro-
posed to limit the school to that
number. There will be ten
boarding scholars in an establish-
ment which has accommodation
for twelve boys.

Wedding

HE St. Patrick’s Roman Cath-

olic Church was the scene of
a quiet but pretty wedding on
Saturday evening last when Miss
Pearl Babb of Barbarees Road was
married to Mr. Victor Boyce, pop-
ular Spartan footballer.

The bride who was given in
marriage by Mr. Bruce Husbands,
presented a charming figure in a
dress of satin trimmed with seed
pearls, rhine stones and lace. Her
headdress was kept in place with
wax flowers and she carried a
ae of -Queen’s lace and ger-

eras,

She was attended by her sister
Mrs. Dolores Husbands as Matron-
of-Honour who also looked beauti-
ful in a dress of satin crepe.

The ceremony was conducted by
Rev. Fr. Parkinson, S.J., while the
duties of bestman were performed
by the bridegroom's father.

A reception was held at Fair-
field, Black Rock, the residence of
the bridegroom’s father, and the

honeymoon is being spent at
Bathsheba, '
En route to England

R. J. NUNES, one of the

Managing Directors of

Messrs, William Fogarty Ltd., who
was in Barbados on a short visit,
left for Trinidad on Monday after-
noon by B.W.I.A., He will join

* his wife there and they wiii then
be leaving for England via the
United States.

A Sleepless Night

ARIB spent a sleepless night
with the Bridgetown Play:
last night as they put on
dress rehearsal after the night
show at the Empire Theatre. The
casting for this difficult play is
excellent with Ralph Crowe and
Chris Gracie playing the lead.
They are ably supported with
Florence and ‘Popa’ Daysh, Donald
Wiles and William Lambert to-
gether with Greta Bancroft,
Norman Wood, Edward Cook and
“Ash” Greenland who are familiar

faces in the Players Group.








Tom Mc Gee is to be congratu-
lated upon moulding the Players
into their respective characters
and in designing the set. ”

FERGOTEX

In Passing

NE of the most difficult argu-
ments to follow today is the
recurring claim that an inter-
national language imposed on all
nations would result in “world
democracy”—as though human
beings were machines, Since all
statesmen talk too much to listen
to what anyone else is saying, it
does not matter now what lan-
guage anybody uses. In fact, the
ess they understand each other
the more chance there will be of
quarrels being localised. The idea
that if Russia and Europe talked
to each other in Esperantd a

wave of “democracy” would
sweep the Soviet world is worthy
of “the best contemporary
thought.”

Drink To Her In Petrol

NE of those men who talk as
though the entire world were
nhabited by motor-cars said the
other day with a soft light in his

LINENE



CARLISSA

eyes: “It’s her birthday tomor-
row.” He was referring to his
motor-car. I suppose he will
take her out and give her a din-
ner of petrol and oil—just the
two of them, tete-a-tete.

Hatmindedness

E American hatter who is

visiting England in order to
persuade men to wear hats
should make use of the astonish-
ing theory of Dr. Calvometzler
of Unterschriebing. Calvometzler
experimented on 42 men, and
found that those who wore hats
in bed never went bald. His
patients slept in their hats and
kept them on all day, and the
result was the same whatever
type of hat they wore. The
Doctor attributed this to the
action of the hat on the follicles,
vesicles, and tarricles. It wa:
later discovered that Calvomet-
zler was a director of the great
hattery at Leipzig, Mohmfutz
and Schnarrheuss.

JULY Ist



WOOLLEN GAIETY
SEEN IN LONDON

THIS IS the time of year when
one has sentimental thoughts
about June brides, extravagant
thoughts about a new wardrobe
practical thoughts about how to




























renovate the old one, or wildly
improbable thoughts about a
word tour.

A young man’s fancy having
ight'y turned to thoughts of love,
a young lady’s fancy turns less
romantically to the never-ending
fascination of new clothes to
greet the spring. The _ latest
announcement from the Govern-
ment on the burning quest'on of
where we are allowed to spend
money on a holiday, opens up
some new territories for us
principally South America and
the Midd’e East. Consequently,
all the glossy fashion magazines
have let themselves go, and we
see tempting views of the
Parthenon, with models clothed
in the latest styles in sun-wear
draped artistically round the
pillars. Having gazed with 4
jaundiced eye at an immaculate

shantung suit visiting an old
lace-maker in Cyprus,. and a
chiffon tweed top-coat leaving
the airfield at Cairo, to sav

nothing of an airy-fairy nylon
balldress dancing at the Copaca-
bana Club in Rio, we returned
heavily to earth and found con-
solation in an excellent show
put on by the International Wool
Secretariat. They called it

“This is it—1951" was the
intriguing name of a swimsuit in
striped wool suede, built on the
cantilever principle by Major du
Cros, an ex-Army engineer. It

is still on the secret list, and was
modelled for us by an exuberant
Australian girl—‘Miss Pacific
1949”. It was backless, strapless,
and beautifully moulded to the
figure. How it stayed up is still
a matter for conjecture.

As a startling contrast we were
shown a bathing suit of 1904,
complete with collar, skirt and
stockings—lent by Doris Langley-
Moore, who'is opening a British
Museum of Costumes.

Our biggest surprise was to find
two men modelling the latest in
men’s wear! Tony and Keith
showed us riding outfits, evening
wear, sports clothes, and what
the elegant young man wears to

Labour From Other Islands

(Brom Qur Own Correspondent’

Big headline news in the Colony
at the moment is the approval of
the Imperial Government of a
sugar quota of 18,000 tons per an-
num for export to the United
Kingdom.

Considerable capital will be re-
i quired for the establishment of a
modern Central Sugar Factory in
the Northern District, clearing of
extensive areas of land, the culti-
vation of cane as well as the build-
ing of suitable houses for labour-
ers, artisans and technicians.

When the work gets properly
underway it is most likely that the
present unemployed will not be
sufficient to take care of all the re-
quirements.

Labour will, therefore, have to
be imported, preferably from the
West Indies where experienced
sugar cane plantation labourers
can be found.

QUESTIONS
IN THE HOUSE

AT the meeting of the House
of Assembly yesterday Mr. Owen
T. Allder gave notice of ques-
tions relative to the advisability
of revoking the order which seeks
to cancel the contracts for the
supplying of cows’ milk to the
elementary schools.

|







The questions are:

1. Is it true that contractcrs
who have been supplying fresh}
milk to the elementary schools
under the nutrition scheme for
over twelve years, have had their
contracts cancelled?

2. Is it true that the notice fer
the cancellation of such coniracts
were only issued to the same con-
tractors one day before deliver-
ies were to be madé to the schools?

3. Is it true that no reason was
stated to the same’ contractors as
to why their contracts have .been
cancelled so suddenly?

4. Is the government aware
that there is a general desire for
the use of the locally produced
cows’ milk in preference to the
imported powdered milk in the
island?

5. If the answer to the above
questions is in the affirmative will
the government state

(a) Why they prefer to pur-
chase this highly priced artificial
milk to be used under the nutri-
tion scheme, and at other institu-
tions in preference to the purer
and cheaper cows’ milk produced
locally?

(b) In view of the possible
loss which would result to the
general economy of the island,
if the same contractors were to
be forced to slaughter their ani-
mals, will the government con-
sider the advisability of having
the order to cancel the contracis
for the supplying of cows’ milk
to the elementary schools re-
voked?

Sugar Delegates

IT HAS been announced that the Barba-
dos delegates at the Sugar Conference to
be held in London later this month will be
Mr. G. H. Adams, Dr. H. G. Cummins and
the Hon. H. A. Cuke.

The question of sugar is of such vital
importance to the future of the West Indies
that it is essential that a united front be
presented when dealing with the British
Government. All parties are agreed that
the terms offered by the British Govern-
ment are not acceptable. It is therefore
regrettable that the Barbados delegation
does not include a member of the Opposi-
tion from the House of Assembly.

Dr. Cummjns is a respected member of
the General Assembly but his association
with sugar has not been as intimate as
others who would surely have been avail-
able. Mr. J. H. Wilkinson was the obvious
choice to accompany Mr. Adams. Leader
of the Opposition, and a man who has in-
terests in the Sugar Industry and with
connections in England, Mr. Wilkinson
would undoubtedly have been a most u‘e-
ful member of such a delegation.

Too often are important matters on
which the future of the island depends
handled on a party basis. To handle a
matter such as sugar on such a basis does
not augur well for the success of the nego-
tiations now underway.

The British Government has already
done its utmost to discourage the delega-
tion and have even gone to the extent of
intimating that they will be wasting their
time by going to England. It is to be hoped
that better counsels will prevail and that
the interests of these islands will not again
be sacrificed in the interests of the British
cursumer.

The West Indies are united on this
matter. The conference held in Grenada
ean have left no doubt of that. If the rea-
sonable claims of the West Indies are again
ignored the British Government will do so
at the risk of alienating the goodwill of
the peoples of this area. The colonies can
no longer be ignored in this way. All the
more surprising is it coming from a Social-
ist Administration. The standard of life
of the workers of Britain cannot be main-
tained and increased at the expense of the
standard of life of colonial workers.

The future of the Empire is not so secure
that statesmen can afford to adopt such an
attitude. Thesé islands have always been
among the most loyal in the Empire but
it is asking too much to expect this to con-
tinue when they see their vital interests
ignored and their pleas for consideration
receiving. scant attention.

Although many may feel the Barbados
delegation could be stronger, the thoughts
and good wishes of all will be with the
delegates‘ as they leave to undertake the

’ eritical and important negotiations on

which so much depends.



Leaderless

THE ABSENCE of the Leader of the majority
Party in the local House of Assembly is becoming
a regidat feature of political life in Barbados.
Mr, Grantley Adams has only recently returned
from the United Kingdom and Switzerland and
he is-leaving this week again en route back to
London, Meanwhile, the local House of Assembly
in Barbados is—at a critical period—also to be
deprived of the services of the Deputy Leader
of the Progressive League Party, Dr. Cummins.

The exact parallel would be the absence from
Westminster at the same time of Mr. Attlee and
Mr. Morrison in a Parliament where there was
no Cabinet. ed

It igs obvious that a small House of Assembly
with no clear majority cannot spare its major
political figures without seriously retarding the
progress of necessary legislation. Either junior
members of Parliament must be sent or the local
House must be content to remove much of its
business from public debate. Neither solution is
Satisfactory but either is preferable to the present
system of a House where there are so many im-
pediments to efficient and speedy action when
efficient and speedy action is the only way out of
our present difficulties,

TICKET FOR BORNEO

.ord Listowel who was Minis-
ter of State at the Colonial Office
in the last Government, has sug-
gested that West Indians should
migrate to British North Borneo.
He made this unexpected proposal
in a debate in the House of Lords.
His speech, then, was ® strange
mixture of originality and
what can only be regarded as
revelations. For instance this
Labour Peer, until recently the
principal assistant of the Colonial
Secretary, expressed little confi-
dence in the scheme in the Evans
Commission Report for settling the
surplus population of the over-
erowded West Indian islands in
the mainland territories of British
Guiana and British Honduras,
From the way he spoke of the idea
of sending West Indians to Borneo
and from his mention of thinking
of the scheme while flying, with
the Governor, over the territory,
the Colonial Office must have
given some thought to-the pro-
posal. But the consideration given
does not seem to have filtered
down to the West Indian depart-
ment. Absolutely no official opin-
ion on the practicability of the
scheme can be obtained, So let
us look_at it, ourselves, on its
merits.





































The climate or 4orneo would not
be to the liking of most West In-
dians. Between 60 and 180 inches
of rain fall in a year, But this
rain does not come in one mon-
soon period but falls steadily, and
unceasingly, throughout the year.
The country is covered with a
thick evergreen rain forest —— the
natural protection for the soil in
this climate. The whole vast terri-
tory of British North Borneo has
a population of about 650,000. It
is true that, as Lord Listowel said,
the average density of population
is about 10 persons to the square
mile. Most of these people are
Dyacks who lead an extremely
primitive life in a form of com-
munal society, Each village lives
in a “long house,” undivided into
rooms and houses for families.
Tom Harrison, the English anthro-
pologist has recently described the
people of the country and he
wrote, in an article last Autumn
in “Corona”, that at the time only
one of the Kelabit people who live
in the hills had learned to read
and write. Lord Listowel, in his
speech, mainly referred to British

North Borneo which only recently
became a Crown Colony. Formerly
it was administered under a Royal
Charter by the Britsh North
Borneo Company. Since a Colonial
Governor and staff have been
appointed, schemes have been
pressed forward for economic de-
velopment of the territory. With
its heavy rainfall the obvious
crops for cultivation are rubber
and ‘rice. But forests yielding
timber were the main source of
revenue to the Company. Develop-
ment of these forests must be slow

immigrants — as British Hondu-
ras shows. The rice cultivation
of the territory is still exceedingly
primitive. But most West Indians,
as well as native cultivators,
would have to be taught modern
methods of rice cultivation and in
any case it is a large task to irri-
gate land and put it under rice.
The plans drawn up for approv-
al by the newly installed Secre-
tariat, for the development of
British North Borneo, deal mainly
with preliminaries. Communica-
tions in this large territory are al-
most entirely lacking. A road is
planned between one coast and



}



the other of the northern tip of
Borneo. The Colonial Develop- |
ment Corporation has taken over |
estates on the east coast, which’
were Japanese property, and
plans to cultivate manila hemp.
The Governor of North Borneo, in
an article — not an official report
—has written “particular atten-
tion has been paid to the medical
and educational
North Borneo. Malnutrition and
the Japanese occupation greatly
reduced the standards of health....
one serious obstacle to develop-
ment is the fact that the present
standard of education is very low
indeed.” Before immigrants could
be absorbed much of this prelim-
inary work would have to be com-
pleted.

Lord Listowel argued that the
alternative source of immigrants
to Borneo would be the Chinese of
Malay or Singapore, or indeed
from China itself, and the Indo-
nesians from Java. His argument
against encouraging Chinese im-
migrants was that, inevitably, they |
would bring the infiltration of}
Communism to Borneo. He sug-

the Indonesian Federal Republic
would he welcome — but it is
known that within Indonesia there
are many islands that its own

Colony of North Borneo it seems |
that Lord Listowel made his sug-|
gestion that West Indians should
migrate there more with the inter-

It is certainly true that Borneo
needs settlers, but it is also true
that Borneo needs slow and ex-
pensive development, education-
ally and materially, before it could
easily absorb. settlers.

Lord Listowel’s suggestion
aroused curiosity among British
M.P.’s_interested in the West In-
dies and they are planning to put
some questions to the Colonial
Secretary. An enquiry is to be
made in Borneo and this writer
hopes to have information avail-
able from the strange water

capital of North Borneo, within a

OUR LEAP IN LIFE!

By Chapman Pincher

E chart shown here, based

on the combined evidence
of scientists, historians, and in-
surance companies, shows how
the average human life-span
has increased since the time of
Neanderthal man 100,000 years
a































go.
Nearly all the delay on death
has been applied during the last
60 years . The civilised Roman
could expect little longer life
than the near-animal Neander-
thal. And because of overcrowd-
ing in insanitary cities the Vic-
torian baby faced a_ slightly
shorter average life than ‘the
youhgster born jn_ medieval
times. ‘
The study of ancient tombs
and skeletons suggests that only
recently have women begun to

live longer than men. More
primitive males overworked
their womenfolk to an earlier
death.

Puppy Deafness

ALL PUPPIES are born

blind, but did you know they
are also bor deaf? I did not.
Neither did the experts at the
Kennel Club or any of the vet-
erinary surgeons I have con-
sulted.

The canals leading from the
outside ears to the eardrums are
tightly closed until the puppy is
about 18 days old, scientists re-
port. So the newly born pup
must be at least as hard of hear-
ing as you are when you put your
fingers in your ears.

Rheumatism Drug

* A POSSIBLE answer to the
tragic shortage of Compound
E—the drug which can clear up
the symptoms of the worst forms
of rheumatism—has been dis-
covered by a Swedish doctor,
The body will produce its own
Compound E if sufficiently stimu-
lated by a pea-sized gland called
the pituitary, which is located
underneath the brain.

Grafting small pieces of calf

Facing Cold

THE ARGUMENT whether

southerners who move north
ever become acclimatised to the
cold or not has been finally set-
tled by experiments carried out
at Cambridge University.

Tests on six young sailors, who
volunteered to live in a room
kept near freezing-point, showed
that some aeclimatisation occurs
within three days. The blood
thickens, and its rate of flow
through the skin speeds up con-
siderably.

Eye Measure
* THE EXACT size of the living
human eye has just been
measured by a new X-ray device,
reports London eye-expert Pro-
fessor HAMILTON HART-

The device throws out a _ pin-

lights up the retina, the eyes’ sen-
sitive screen, just as the electric
beam inside a television set lights
up the viewing screen.

Measurements of many Britons
show that the eyeball of even the
most innocently wide-eyed woman
is slightly less than one inch
across. The beadiest eye has a
width of three-quarters of an inch.

power to spend on the round-
abouts what is saved on the
swings, the money continues to
pour out and hospital costs to

“The haspital service repre-
sents’ a notable innovation in
social. affairs. In it, financial and
managerial responsibility are
divorced. The provision of funds

is centralized, so that all hospitals
can. enjoy financial security,
while management is entrusted

to lecal committees, co-ordinated
by regional boards, in order to
preserve that fiexibility and local

touch essential for the welfare
of patients and the professional
freedom of doctors. For this
-novel experiment to work, the
hospital management committee,
subject to any necessary control
of its regional board, must be in
a position to count on a total
annual sum, deemed adequate
for its needs, which it is free to
spend or save as it thinks fit.
This is not what is happening
- » + . The present makeshift
methods were perhaps inevitable
in the initial stages of a great
social experiment. Their con-
tinuance may well wreck an
experiment in the delegated man-
agement of a State _ service
which was launched with the
highest hopes’.

Referring to the lack of a cost-
ing system, this editorial argued
that such a system is an essential
prerequisite to the delegation of
spending power to match the
delegation of administrative re-
sponsibility. In the 20th report
of the Select Committee on the
Estimates we have recently been
told that something is in fact
being done about a costing sys-
*tem. So far so good. But such

a system by itself will not take
us “far; with it must be coupled
the bold experiment in delegation
of financial responsibility for
which the “Times” called

The question to which Parlia-
ment should address itself is
surely, what substantial reason
is there why the principle of
round-sum allocations should not
be adopted?

It sometimes seems that the
financial authorities concerned
are strangely blind to the nature
of hospital finance. What they
seem to miss is the fact that in
any hospital, at any time and any
place, a really strong case can
be put up for additional expen-
diture; and that, in the present
state of society, against this
advocacy no barrier erected by
a lay authority, not even Parlia-
ment itself, can long prove
effective if the question is merely
one of .voting the money. There
is, of course, nothing new about

this; but before nationalisation
each hospital was a unit—or in
the case of the local-authority
hospitals part of the relatively

small unit for limited finances—

where ohe medical need clashed
with another, and a great many,
as it were, cancelled eaeh other
cut. The financial authorities do
rot seem to have seen that it is
to their own great advantage to
grant the degree of _delegation
here advocated; as soon as they
Co, projects for expenditure will,
for the first time since the
appointed day, be fully exposed
to rigorous and informed medical
criticism. One claim will have
to be compared with another, and
some of them will look less con-
vincing than they do today.

A system based on round-sum

allocations ‘would not’ only save’

the Treasury a large part of ‘h
steadily mounting bill, but would,
at the same time, rescue the
hospitals from the strait-jacket
into which they are now being
gradually forced. To put it
shortly, the hospitals
fundamentalty rather have less
money, and be free to spend it
as they liked, than have to con-
form

to a rigid “approved
budget” and make every addi-
tional item they need the subject

of an addition to estimates liable
to be pruned from above. Doubt-

would,

difficult to introduce such a
system right away on the
appointed day; but with the

knowledge of what the hospitals
lapk like costing under the new
regime it should be practical
politics to say to each regional

hospital board something like

A little too drastic, does it
sound? Perhaps so; perhaps for
quite a long while all sorts of
exceptions would have to

New Hospital Posts
Created: Salaries Raised

In Accordance With Hallinan Report

THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY yesterday passed a Reso-
lution creating new posts afid increasing the salaries of
present posts at the General Hospital in accordance with
recommendations in the Hallinan Report on the Hospi-
tal. The Resolution approves the Civil Establishment
(General Amendment) No. 5 Order.

Dr, Hallinan proposed that there

they would not have any Resident

was no Medical Superintendent.
If the resolution was passed, they
would be able to advertise abroad
for people to fill those posts.

sage informing the House what re-
commendations were to be imple-
mented, and what would be post-
poned.

He said that Barbados, unlike
other countries, had one hospital
and one Radiologist, and he felt
that there was need for another
when they considered that there
were 192,000 people in the island.

It was not sufficient to ask peo-
ple who must have certain treat-

Specialists

He said that when they came
to pay sp€cialists for the treat-
ment of the health of the people,
they must pay them good salar-
ies. If they wanted trained spec-
ialists to handle the people who
were suffering in the country, they
had to keep abreast of other
countries.

Mr. J. H. Wilkinson (E) sup-
ported the remarks of the last
speaker. He said that they on that
side of the table sympathised
with the honourable senior mem-
ber for St. Thomas and he ap-
preciated that the position was
very urgent. Like the honourable
senior member for the City, he
would vote for the resolution, but
with great reluctance.

The honourable member who
introduced the resolution said
that it was a matter of urgency,
but when it came to the Hospital
and sickness, they must pay due
regard to salaries and increase
them. He did not agree with

colleague that if | these
were increased, they

would have to increase salaries

throughout the service.

Urgent Matter

The House went into Committee
on the Resolution, Mr. E. K, Wal-
cott recalled that Dr. Cummins had
said that the matter was an urgent
one, But on turning a leaf he had
discovered that the Order had
been made on April 27, and there
had been a meeting of the House
since then. There should therefore
be some explanation why it had
not been on the table of the House
before if it was so urgent.

Mr. E. K. Walcott (E) going
through the salaries proposed in
in the Resolution said it was
the first attack on Commissioner
Adams’ Report.

They could not break the line in
one part of the Service, without
feeling the repercussions in other
parts. The moment they said that
a medical officer should be paid
such and such a salary—which he
felt was somewhat high—it would
mean that they would have to
fall into line where other special- _his
ist officers in the Cvil Service were
concerned. *

Mr. Ex D. Mottley (E) said he

did not agree that the salary of
the medical officers was too high,

He looked upon this matter as
a question of life and death ard

taking things generally. He would
have blamed the Government if,
knowing that the situation at the
hospital was serious, they had not
taken immediate steps to remedy
it. As it was, he commended the
Government for the action they
had’ taken.

salaries to some honourable mem-
bers might be too anne at he

sas. GUG aid asrea wuewher the
present accommodation at the
Hospital was sucn .nat there was
a requirement of seven resident
medical officers.

Mr. Dowding (E) said that as he
had done on previous occasions,
he would again do, object strongly
on any hapnazara Resolution being
put, before the House.

No! Gifted

All of them were not gifted with
that mentality or intelligence that
they would know. then all the
facts of Dr. Hallinan’s report.
Legislation of that kind needed
time and consideration, and their
memory should be re-awakened.

During their last session that
procedure had been adopted on
numerous occasions, and he
thought it to be the correct pro-
cedure. Of course, he said, they
would arise emergencies, but he
did not think the matter under
discussion could be termed such.

He felt that mere increases of
salaries on the hospital staff
would not stave off the disturbed
situation as was then in existence.

Foreign Experts

They were much too eager to
bring people from abroad into the
island to make investigations into
matters which they knew much
more about than the people. If
the report had been made by a
locally appointed committee, with
probably a member of the Gov-
ernment and one of the Executive
as observers, he thought there
would not have been the cause for
hurry as there was then.

He hoped, however, that the
Honourable Senior Member for St.
Thomas in whom the members on
that side of the House placed a
great deal of confidence, would go
into the matter very carefully and
reply before they voted.

Laymen

Mr. Lewis (L) said that he had
not been in the island when the
Commissioner had been appointed
to investigate the hospital, but he
felt that a useful purpose would
have been served ifisome laymen
had been included.

He was not one of those who
felt that everything should be
divorced from politics. Soon poli-
ticians had to assume ministerial
status and run the island. It was
only after experience that they
could do so properly, Members
of Government would be able to
speak with more authority than
they did then, and it was a stupid
idea to hold that politics corrupt-
ed everything.

he honourable member who
had just sat down had said that
politicians should be included in
the commission and had then
talked about a strong Board which
was free from politics as being
the best means of running the
hospital. The statements wére not
reconcilable.

Not Help Materially

He was among those who felt
that an increase in salary would
not help matters materially. They
could not have professional people
going to work at the hospital and
being treated in such a way that
their contracts would terminate
without the necessary explana-
tion but only given a subtle state-
ment which could only be
appreciated by a crooked mind.

They had to be careful what
they were doing in their efforts
of assisting the hospital to become
efficient. They had undertaken
the training of 66 nurses but he
wondered whether _ there
accommodation for them at the
hospital. He wanted to know
what arrangements had _ been
made to accommodate such an
increase of staff.

Mr. Lewis pointed out that the
non-payment of rent was for
people with whom contracts had
been signed and he did not see
they could tell such to pay rent
after the contract.

Urgent, Desperate

Dr. Cummins (L) said that
the situation had been an urgent
and desperate one and they had
had to hurry down the Resolu-
tion, especially as the house might
be adjourned for three weeks,
and they wanted to be able to
advertise for the posts.

The medical officers were then
getting £572 a year, but in Trini-
dad medical officers’ salarigs were
much higher. They could not
expect to keep such men in Bar-
bad6s with Trinidad next door
paying better salaries, In Barba-
dos, too, unlike Trinidad, there
was no Service and the lack of
Service served to decrease the
enthusiasm of medical men.

It had happened a short while
ago that two young furgeons were
kept on night duty for about /a
year. That, they had-to admit
was rather nerve racking. They
hopped that the increase in staff
and salary would reduce dissatis-
faction at the hospital to a mini-
mum,

Shops Selling Fresh

Fruit Can

—Resolves House Yesterday

THE HOUSE CF ASSEMBLY yesterday passed a Reso-
lution sanctioning an Order under the Shop Closing Act,
exempting from closing,shops engaged in the selling ot fresh
fruit, rresh vegetables and handicrafts of B.W.I. origin.

Cummins

Dr. H. G. moved the
passing of the Resolution. He said
that representation had been made
to the Government by the Domin-
ica and St. Lucia Marketing Agen-
cy as to the exemption of the
shops mentioned. This was ap-
proved of by the Labour Com-
missioner and Government had
concurred. As a result the pres-
ent Resolution was before the
House. He begged to move that
it be passed,

Mr. F. L. Walcott seconded,

Mr. J. H. Wilkinson said that it
was going to take a lot of detec-
tive work to see that the Order
was carried out, and that the op-
portunity was not taken to sell
other things besides those named.
There were a good many sfops
which sold these articles along
with other things and a great
deal of vigilance would therefore
be needed to see that the law wa:
net broken, ;

Saw The Necessity

Mr. Fred Goddard said that he
saw the necessity for the Resolu-
tion. There was nothing wrong
with it, but he would like to take
the opportunity to say that other
amendments might have been
made at the same time.

Some day Christmas was going
to fall on a Friday, and stores in
Bridgetown would have been
cléSed half day on the preceding
Thursday. When this happened it
would go down in history that
Barbados was the only place in
the world to close its shopping
facilities to the public on the day
before Christmas.

In many countries shops were
opened on such an_ occasion
until a late hour for the benefit
of the public. This was a matter
that apparently no one thought
about when the Shop Closing Act
was passed, Three or four years
had passed, and nothing had been
done about it. He was sure that
in the very near future ey
would be faced with the predic-
ament to which he was drawing
their attention.

Certain Rights

He understood that the Labour
Commissioner had certain rights
to authorise the opening of shops
on special occasions. Applications,
however, had been made to him
by one or two agents and he had
turned them down, saying that he
had no authority to grant their
request,

Whether he did not know his
powers or the legal set-up was
somewhat cloudy, he (Mr. God-
dard) did not know, but he did
think that some attention should
be paid to that if the shopping
public were not to suffer very
severely one of these days.

Mr. L. E. Smith said that he
wanted to support the remarks of
the last speaker. When they had
passed the Shop Closing Act some
four years ago, it was in all good
faith.

Mr. Garner made the motion
which was seconded by Mr ti
J. E. T. Brancker.

Mr. H. A. Dowding said that

THE MATCH between

tershire was drawn here to-day.

WORCESTER, May 9.
the Wes; Indies and Worces-
West Indies declared
wickets; and in reply Worces-

tershire scored 134 for 4 wickets.



Wl. PLAY
YORKSHIRE
TODAY

AFTER some sodden play at
Worcester in their opening game
which petéred out in a no de-
cision, the West Indies will today
engage Yorksmire in the second
big fixture,

‘Yhere is a tradition attached to
this game, and next to winning a
Test match touring teams always
attach the utmost importance to
their performance against this
northern county—the county of
dour fighters. Two of England’s
greatest left handers — Leyland
and Verity, and the almost legend-
ary name of Lord Hawke come to
the mind at mention of this York-
shire game, and today’s matgh
weather permitting—will be con-
tested no less keenly than any of
the previous six.

Every West Indies team to
visit England had a fixcure
with Yorkshire with the ex-
ception of the 1923 side. But
to make up for this the 1928
team met the county twice.

Qf the six games played York-
shire won 2. the West Indies 1, and
three had to be abandoned owing
to rain. 2 =~

First Game

In the West Indies first visit te
England only 25 minutes play was
possible in their match with York-
shire, during which the homesters
scored 23 runs without loss. Then
rain endéd the match.

Six years later, on their second
visit, the West Indies won this fix-
ture in fine style. Batting first,
they scored 270 of which L, S.
Constantine, worthy father of his
famous son Learie, made 79, and
Ollie Layne 63. Yorkshire replied
with only 50, thanks to some
splendid bowling by Ollivierre of
St. Vineént who took 7 wickets for
23 runs in 12 overs.

Percy Goodman with 102 not out
led the W.I. batsmen to score 305
for 6 wickets declared. Goodman
hit 16 fours in an hour and a half
at Uge crease.

Yorkshire were 526 behind
but tried gallantly and were
only able to get 263. D. Den-
ton made 112 of this total, and
his century along with Good-
man’s are the only three fig-
ure innings ever to be played
in any_of these games.

The West Indies thus won by
253 runs, Ollivierre taking 4
wickets for 103 in the County’s
second in

—Two Games—

The ee played the hyo
Indies in 1 Rain delayed t!
start and interrupted the first
game played early in June, which
was finally abandon

In the second saath Yorkshire

avenged their defeat of 1906, and
the West Indies were soundly
beaten. Yorkshire batted first
and ‘collected 284, Sutcliffe scor-
fh ; George Francis with 4

priv? ey ag at 172 for 1, and
thi to Macaulay, bowled out
the West Indies for 58 to win the
game.

The homesters won again in
1933, Yorkshire scored 240 (Con-
stantine 5 for 40). Verity ran
ee the visitors seins 7 for

, and they were all out for 115.

Yorkshire’s second venture yield-

ed 248 and the West Indies were
set 278 to win. Verity again took
7 wickets, and the West Indies

had lost a second time.
. The West Indies-Yorkshire fix-
ture in 1939 was the eighteenth on
the card, and this too was aban-
doned through rain.

est Indies scored 234 in their
fir: innings and 116 for 6
wickets.

Yorkshire were all out for
in their first innings.

Bertie Clarke took 5 for 49, and
Constantine 5 for 28.

Today our boys will come up
against Len Hutton, England’s No.
1, Norman Yardley, England’s
Test Captain, and perhaps Gerald
Smithson and Wardle whom we
savy down here with the M.C.C. in
1948.

We hope the weather will be
kinder at Bradford, than at Wor-
cester, and that the West Indies
will have a good chance to draw
level with the county’s two vic-
tories.

A TOUGH DAY AT THE

OFFICE! I DO ENOUGH
RUSHING AROUND! LET.
ME RELAX;

MOVIE FOR HIM=
BUT et

WITH THE INVITATION:
THATS DIFFERENT !

So much time was lost throusa
bad weather at Worcester that
the chief purposes servéd by the
two and. three quarter hours
play on the last day of the West
Indies opening first class match
of the tour were in providing
practice for the players and a
reward for some 1,500 spéctators.

Play was delayed because 0
the wet state of the pitch uni!
after lunch. The West Indies
again showed their eagerness 1)
play whenever humanly possible
but the ground was so treache:-
ous that John Goddard, who de-
clared at the overnight total, did
not risk calling upon his fast
bowlers, Hines Johnson and Prior
ones.

“Tt is doubtful whether Johnsol
would have bowled in any case
as he was suffering from slight
stomach trouble and after an
hour's play he left the field.
Not until towards the end of

the day did any of the five
bowlers tried — Gerry Gomez,
Frank Worrell, John Goddard,

Sonny Ramadhin and Jeff Stoll-

meyer—mauke the ball turn othei
than very slowly. Because of this
no useful opinion could be form-
ed of the likely strength of this
ysection on their attack. Though

he sun shone warmly and the
ielding side did not extend them-
elvés, Worcestershire never batted
s freely as might have been _éx-
acted. Compared with the West
adies on Saturday most of the

County players seemed leaden,
Kenyon, who opened his score
with a six, and Cooper, made 71

for the first wicket, but the batting
as a whole was uninspired. Wor-
cestershire finished 115 runs be-
hind with four wickets down,

Russia Walks
Out 23rd Time

BANGKOK, May 9.

Soviet Russia to-day walked
out of another United Nations
body when a Committee of the
Economic Commission for Asia and
the Far East (ECAFE) to-day
opposed a proposal to admit the
Communist Government of China
instead of the Chinese Nationalist
delegate.

The walkout was made from the
opening of the Committee of In-
dustry and Trade after it had re-
jected what was Communist
China’s first direct attempt to
enter a United Nations Organisa-
tion.

The Chinese Communist radio
had earlier announced the ap-
pointment of Chi Choa-Tung .s
Chinese Peoples’ Republic dele-
gate at the meeting.

Russia has now walked out of
23 United Nations bodies, includ-
ing all the important onés exéept

to the British Union Oil Com-

The Act provides that the lessor
and the lessee are to be compensa-
ted for the vesting of the rights
in this well in the Government
but as the terms of the compensa-
tion must necessarily take some
time to arrange, the Government
wrote to the British Union Oil
Company on the 28th of April,
1950, after the Act was proclaimed
asking them if they would be good
enough to continue to operate the
natural gas well pending discus-
sions on compensation.

The Government réceived
reply

no
to this letter for several

|days, but on the 5th of May, 1950,

a letter was received saying that
they could not continue to opera‘e
the well after the 20th of May un-
less certain conditions were
accepted.

Before the Government could
reply to the letter, another com-
munication was received from the
British Union Oil Company en-
closing a copy of a letter to them
from the Honourable J. D.
Chandler, M.L.C., claiming that
the British Union Oil Company
were trespassers and giving them
notieé to quit within seven days.

The British Union Oil Company
statéd that this would require
cutting off the supply -» May 10th.

Solicitor Instructed

The Government immediately
instructed thé King’s Solicitor to
get in touch with Mr. Chandler
and point out to him that as the
Act fully provided for compensa-
tion both to the lessor and the
lessee, there was no necessity for
precipitate action and to request
him, in the public interest, to
withdraw the notice to quit so as
to enable the whole matter of
compensation to be discussed in a
calm atmosphere’ without the
threat of the disruption of an im1
portant public service hanging
over the negotiations.

The King’s Solicitor was further
instructed to inform the British
Union Oil Company and Mr.
Chandler that the Government
were willing to negotiate on the
basis that a new lease of the
ratural gas well should be granted
by Government to the British
Union Oil Compny on the same
terms as the old lease and that
(he British Union Oil Company
should continue to pay royalties
to the lessor at the same rate
as in the past,

Necessary Authority

This proposal would, if accept-
ed, restore the status quo for all
practical purposes, In addition
a letter has been written to the
British Union Oil Company, giv-
ing them the necessary authority
under Section 3 of the Petroleum
Act, 1950; to continue operating
the Turner’s Hall Natural Gz
well pending the outcome of
negotiations and a copy of this
letter has been forwarded to the
Attorney of Turner’s Hall with a
request that, in the circumstances,
he should withdraw the notice to
qujt. It is hoped that as result
of the proposals put forward by
the Government, the natural gas
supply will not be interrupted,
and it will be found possible to
arrive at the solution satisfac-
tory to all concerne|

and the chancés of bridging the!
differences between Eastern and/

estern Europe would be im-
proved. |

Mr Lie said that the non-mem-!

meant that almost as many Eu-
ropean countries have not been
admitted to the United Nations us
are members,

The Secretary General was
laying the foundation stone of a
new wing to the Palais des Na-

Court this morning.

Their Majesties the King and Queen spent one hour
in the Commonwealth section and of that time 20

minutes were taken up in the West Indies section.
onan " ~ ————* At one stage in the Royal Visit

Their Majesties fell behind their
time scheduled and when it was
pointed out to the King that his
tour was running late he just
laughed and said “they are al-
ways trying to hurry us.”

Then he and the Queen con-
tinued their inspection of the
West Indies section.

The King and Queen began
jtheir visit by looking at the
Jamaica stand where they were
received by Mr. J. Dubuisson,
Chairman of the West India
Committee. The Queen express-
|ed admiration for the straw hats
which were on view and she
ordered one for herself. a smaller
model was also ordered for
young Prince Charles.

bassador in Rome a note clarifying
a statemen! by Zellerbach, head of
the ECA in Italy made before

of Representatives Foreign Affairs
Committee in Washington refer-
ring to the situation on Italian

immigrants in Brazil.

Zellerbach in Rome told the

ambassador that he denied ne|

This statement recommends al-
location of Marshall Aid funds

“Aecording to Zetlerbach re-

LANDY DE MONTBRUN.

They Came, Played and
Conquered

POKE to Landy de Montbrun

yesterday and he told me that
his troupe of Trinidad artistes,
who played here so successfully
last week returned to Trinidad on
Sunday.

Landy, after a week of imitat-
ing animals, singing like a lady
and making wise cracks has al-
most completely lost his voice.
Still, in his hoarse whisper he had
me laughing during our entire
conversation. He expects to re-
turn to Trinidad on Saturday.
Clifford Corbin is the only other
member of the troupe still here,
he is on annual leave,

Allan Jones, who arrived a few
days late for thé opening of the
show certainly went over well
here with his powerful baritone
voice.

They covered almost the entire
island, playing at several of the
schools, clubs, cinemas and also at
Speightstown, 4

Sport Commentator

day night Sports Talk ove: Radio
Trinidad and during his stay here
he expects to make three record-
ings for this programme, especial-
ly of the Barbados-Tran juility

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE



The New Headmaster
RINITY term of_the Antigua
Grammar school opened on

Monday with a new headmaster,
Mr. John Freeland Foote, M.A.
(Cambridge). Mr. Foote was born
in Antigua, attended the Gram-
mar School for several years be-
fore he went to Dover College
and then to Cambridge where he
took Law and History in 1933. He
always preferred teaching and has
had considerable experience in
English schools.

At the outbreak of the last war
he left Maiden Englegh near
Reading and was second in‘charge
of Anti-Gas Defence at Worthing.
From 1941-1946 Mr. Foote was at-
tached tq R.A.F. Bomb Disposal,
and 1946-1947 he again resumed
his teaching career and was at St.
Ronans Hawhurst Preparatory
School from whence he accepted
a position on the staff of the An-
tigua Grammar School.

The school is very fortunate in
having secured Mr. Foote’s ser-
vices especially as he is an old
boy of the school who loves the
-sland although the greater part
of his life has been spent in Eng-

land. Mr. Foote’s ancestors came }.

to Antigua in 1760 from Ferman-
agh, Ireland, attached to the regi-
ment stationed at Shirley Heights
and he is the sixth generation of
a Foote to live and work in An-
tigua. He has taken up residence
at the school with Mrs. Foote and
their son Richard. There will be
240 boys on the roll and it is pro-
posed to limit the school to that
number. There will be ten
boarding scholars in an establish-
ment which has accommodation
for twelve boys.

Wedding

HE St. Patrick’s Roman Cath-

olic Church was the scene of
a quiet but pretty wedding on
Saturday evening last when Miss
Pearl Babb of Barbarees Road was
married to Mr. Victor Boyce, pop-
ular Spartan footballer.

The bride who was given in
marriage by Mr. Bruce Husbands,
presented a charming figure in a
dress of satin trimmed with seed
pearls, rhine stones and lace. Her
headdress was kept in place with
wax flowers and she carried a
ae of -Queen’s lace and ger-

eras,

She was attended by her sister
Mrs. Dolores Husbands as Matron-
of-Honour who also looked beauti-
ful in a dress of satin crepe.

The ceremony was conducted by
Rev. Fr. Parkinson, S.J., while the
duties of bestman were performed
by the bridegroom's father.

A reception was held at Fair-
field, Black Rock, the residence of
the bridegroom’s father, and the

honeymoon is being spent at
Bathsheba, '
En route to England

R. J. NUNES, one of the

Managing Directors of

Messrs, William Fogarty Ltd., who
was in Barbados on a short visit,
left for Trinidad on Monday after-
noon by B.W.I.A., He will join

* his wife there and they wiii then
be leaving for England via the
United States.

A Sleepless Night

ARIB spent a sleepless night
with the Bridgetown Play:
last night as they put on
dress rehearsal after the night
show at the Empire Theatre. The
casting for this difficult play is
excellent with Ralph Crowe and
Chris Gracie playing the lead.
They are ably supported with
Florence and ‘Popa’ Daysh, Donald
Wiles and William Lambert to-
gether with Greta Bancroft,
Norman Wood, Edward Cook and
“Ash” Greenland who are familiar

faces in the Players Group.








Tom Mc Gee is to be congratu-
lated upon moulding the Players
into their respective characters
and in designing the set. ”

FERGOTEX

In Passing

NE of the most difficult argu-
ments to follow today is the
recurring claim that an inter-
national language imposed on all
nations would result in “world
democracy”—as though human
beings were machines, Since all
statesmen talk too much to listen
to what anyone else is saying, it
does not matter now what lan-
guage anybody uses. In fact, the
ess they understand each other
the more chance there will be of
quarrels being localised. The idea
that if Russia and Europe talked
to each other in Esperantd a

wave of “democracy” would
sweep the Soviet world is worthy
of “the best contemporary
thought.”

Drink To Her In Petrol

NE of those men who talk as
though the entire world were
nhabited by motor-cars said the
other day with a soft light in his

LINENE



CARLISSA

eyes: “It’s her birthday tomor-
row.” He was referring to his
motor-car. I suppose he will
take her out and give her a din-
ner of petrol and oil—just the
two of them, tete-a-tete.

Hatmindedness

E American hatter who is

visiting England in order to
persuade men to wear hats
should make use of the astonish-
ing theory of Dr. Calvometzler
of Unterschriebing. Calvometzler
experimented on 42 men, and
found that those who wore hats
in bed never went bald. His
patients slept in their hats and
kept them on all day, and the
result was the same whatever
type of hat they wore. The
Doctor attributed this to the
action of the hat on the follicles,
vesicles, and tarricles. It wa:
later discovered that Calvomet-
zler was a director of the great
hattery at Leipzig, Mohmfutz
and Schnarrheuss.

WOOLLEN GAIETY
SEEN IN LONDON

THIS IS the time of year when
one has sentimental thoughts
about June brides, extravagant
thoughts about a new wardrobe
practical thoughts about how to




























renovate the old one, or wildly
improbable thoughts about a
word tour.

A young man’s fancy having
ight'y turned to thoughts of love,
a young lady’s fancy turns less
romantically to the never-ending
fascination of new clothes to
greet the spring. The _ latest
announcement from the Govern-
ment on the burning quest'on of
where we are allowed to spend
money on a holiday, opens up
some new territories for us
principally South America and
the Midd’e East. Consequently,
all the glossy fashion magazines
have let themselves go, and we
see tempting views of the
Parthenon, with models clothed
in the latest styles in sun-wear
draped artistically round the
pillars. Having gazed with 4
jaundiced eye at an immaculate

shantung suit visiting an old
lace-maker in Cyprus,. and a
chiffon tweed top-coat leaving
the airfield at Cairo, to sav

nothing of an airy-fairy nylon
balldress dancing at the Copaca-
bana Club in Rio, we returned
heavily to earth and found con-
solation in an excellent show
put on by the International Wool
Secretariat. They called it
“Leisure and Pleasure in Wool’.

“This is it—1951" was the
intriguing name of a swimsuit in
striped wool suede, built on the
cantilever principle by Major du
Cros, an ex-Army engineer. It

is still on the secret list, and was
modelled for us by an exuberant
Australian girl—‘Miss Pacific
1949”. It was backless, strapless,
and beautifully moulded to the
figure. How it stayed up is still
a matter for conjecture.

As a startling contrast we were
shown a bathing suit of 1904,
complete with collar, skirt and
stockings—lent by Doris Langley-
Moore, who'is opening a British
Museum of Costumes.

Our biggest surprise was to find
two men modelling the latest in
men’s wear! Tony and Keith
showed us riding outfits, evening
wear, sports clothes, and what
the elegant young man wears to
the races—“fancy black herring-

bone covered worsted morning
coat, worn with grey diagonal

Labour From Other Islands

(Brom Qur Own Correspondent’

Big headline news in the Colony
at the moment is the approval of
the Imperial Government of a
sugar quota of 18,000 tons per an-
num for export to the United
Kingdom.

Considerable capital will be re-
i quired for the establishment of a
modern Central Sugar Factory in
the Northern District, clearing of
extensive areas of land, the culti-
vation of cane as well as the build-
ing of suitable houses for labour-
ers, artisans and technicians.

When the work gets properly
underway it is most likely that the
present unemployed will not be
sufficient to take care of all the re-
quirements.

Labour will, therefore, have to
be imported, preferably from the
West Indies where experienced
sugar cane plantation labourers
can be found.

QUESTIONS
IN THE HOUSE

AT the meeting of the House
of Assembly yesterday Mr. Owen
T. Allder gave notice of ques-
tions relative to the advisability
of revoking the order which seeks
to cancel the contracts for the
supplying of cows’ milk to the
elementary schools.

|







The questions are:

1. Is it true that contractcrs
who have been supplying fresh}
milk to the elementary schools
under the nutrition scheme for
over twelve years, have had their
contracts cancelled?

2. Is it true that the notice fer
the cancellation of such coniracts
were only issued to the same con-
tractors one day before deliver-
ies were to be madé to the schools?

3. Is it true that no reason was
stated to the same’ contractors as
to why their contracts have .been
cancelled so suddenly?

4. Is the government aware
that there is a general desire for
the use of the locally produced
cows’ milk in preference to the
imported powdered milk in the
island?

5. If the answer to the above
questions is in the affirmative will
the government state

(a) Why they prefer to pur-
chase this highly priced artificial
milk to be used under the nutri-
tion scheme, and at other institu-
tions in preference to the purer
and cheaper cows’ milk produced
locally?

(b) In view of the possible
loss which would result to the
general economy of the island,
if the same contractors were to
be forced to slaughter their ani-
mals, will the government con-
sider the advisability of having
the order to cancel the contracis
for the supplying of cows’ milk
to the elementary schools re-
voked?

After suffe from three painful
complaints, this man writes to
tell us bow uschen brought
about a ‘complete transforma-
tion’ and que ‘ly gave him back
the joy of living :—

“Up to a month ago, I had
suffered continually from kidney
disorder, sciatica, rheumatism,
end I generally felt off-colour,

many remedies but without effect
until t gave Kruschen Salts a
trial. In four weeks Kruschen
has brought about a complete
transformation. ! once more feel
it is good to be alive.”--8.V.N

The kidneys are the filters of
the human body, If they become
sluggish, impurities seep into the
blood stream and the seed of
half-a-dozen common ailments is
sown.

The scientific combination of
mineral Salts in Kruschen, quickly
restores the kidneys to normal
healthy action. The other excretory

| organs also are stimulated go that

the whole system works oothly

and effectively. All impurities and

poisonous waste are regularly

expelled. Then ailments venish—life
mes a joy again.

Give Kruschen a trial yourself. You
can get it from all Chemiste and

Sugar Delegates

IT HAS been announced that the Barba-
dos delegates at the Sugar Conference to
be held in London later this month will be
Mr. G. H. Adams, Dr. H. G. Cummins and
the Hon. H. A. Cuke.

The question of sugar is of such vital
importance to the future of the West Indies
that it is essential that a united front be
presented when dealing with the British
Government. All parties are agreed that
the terms offered by the British Govern-
ment are not acceptable. It is therefore
regrettable that the Barbados delegation
does not include a member of the Opposi-
tion from the House of Assembly.

Dr. Cummjns is a respected member of
the General Assembly but his association
with sugar has not been as intimate as
others who would surely have been avail-
able. Mr. J. H. Wilkinson was the obvious
choice to accompany Mr. Adams. Leader
of the Opposition, and a man who has in-
terests in the Sugar Industry and with
connections in England, Mr. Wilkinson
would undoubtedly have been a most u‘e-
ful member of such a delegation.

Too often are important matters on
which the future of the island depends
handled on a party basis. To handle a
matter such as sugar on such a basis does
not augur well for the success of the nego-
tiations now underway.

The British Government has already
done its utmost to discourage the delega-
tion and have even gone to the extent of
intimating that they will be wasting their
time by going to England. It is to be hoped
that better counsels will prevail and that
the interests of these islands will not again
be sacrificed in the interests of the British
cursumer.

The West Indies are united on this
matter. The conference held in Grenada
ean have left no doubt of that. If the rea-
sonable claims of the West Indies are again
ignored the British Government will do so
at the risk of alienating the goodwill of
the peoples of this area. The colonies can
no longer be ignored in this way. All the
more surprising is it coming from a Social-
ist Administration. The standard of life
of the workers of Britain cannot be main-
tained and increased at the expense of the
standard of life of colonial workers.

The future of the Empire is not so secure
that statesmen can afford to adopt such an
attitude. Thesé islands have always been
among the most loyal in the Empire but
it is asking too much to expect this to con-
tinue when they see their vital interests
ignored and their pleas for consideration
receiving. scant attention.

Although many may feel the Barbados
delegation could be stronger, the thoughts
and good wishes of all will be with the
delegates‘ as they leave to undertake the

’ eritical and important negotiations on

which so much depends.



Leaderless

THE ABSENCE of the Leader of the majority
Party in the local House of Assembly is becoming
a regidat feature of political life in Barbados.
Mr, Grantley Adams has only recently returned
from the United Kingdom and Switzerland and
he is-leaving this week again en route back to
London, Meanwhile, the local House of Assembly
in Barbados is—at a critical period—also to be
deprived of the services of the Deputy Leader
of the Progressive League Party, Dr. Cummins.

The exact parallel would be the absence from
Westminster at the same time of Mr. Attlee and
Mr. Morrison in a Parliament where there was
no Cabinet. ed

It igs obvious that a small House of Assembly
with no clear majority cannot spare its major
political figures without seriously retarding the
progress of necessary legislation. Either junior
members of Parliament must be sent or the local
House must be content to remove much of its
business from public debate. Neither solution is
Satisfactory but either is preferable to the present
system of a House where there are so many im-
pediments to efficient and speedy action when
efficient and speedy action is the only way out of
our present difficulties,

TICKET FOR BORNEO

.ord Listowel who was Minis-
ter of State at the Colonial Office
in the last Government, has sug-
gested that West Indians should
migrate to British North Borneo.
He made this unexpected proposal
in a debate in the House of Lords.
His speech, then, was ® strange
mixture of originality and
what can only be regarded as
revelations. For instance this
Labour Peer, until recently the
principal assistant of the Colonial
Secretary, expressed little confi-
dence in the scheme in the Evans
Commission Report for settling the
surplus population of the over-
erowded West Indian islands in
the mainland territories of British
Guiana and British Honduras,
From the way he spoke of the idea
of sending West Indians to Borneo
and from his mention of thinking
of the scheme while flying, with
the Governor, over the territory,
the Colonial Office must have
given some thought to-the pro-
posal. But the consideration given
does not seem to have filtered
down to the West Indian depart-
ment. Absolutely no official opin-
ion on the practicability of the
scheme can be obtained, So let
us look_at it, ourselves, on its
merits.





































The climate or 4orneo would not
be to the liking of most West In-
dians. Between 60 and 180 inches
of rain fall in a year, But this
rain does not come in one mon-
soon period but falls steadily, and
unceasingly, throughout the year.
The country is covered with a
thick evergreen rain forest —— the
natural protection for the soil in
this climate. The whole vast terri-
tory of British North Borneo has
a population of about 650,000. It
is true that, as Lord Listowel said,
the average density of population
is about 10 persons to the square
mile. Most of these people are
Dyacks who lead an extremely
primitive life in a form of com-
munal society, Each village lives
in a “long house,” undivided into
rooms and houses for families.
Tom Harrison, the English anthro-
pologist has recently described the
people of the country and he
wrote, in an article last Autumn
in “Corona”, that at the time only
one of the Kelabit people who live
in the hills had learned to read
and write. Lord Listowel, in his
speech, mainly referred to British

North Borneo which only recently
became a Crown Colony. Formerly
it was administered under a Royal
Charter by the Britsh North
Borneo Company. Since a Colonial
Governor and staff have been
appointed, schemes have been
pressed forward for economic de-
velopment of the territory. With
its heavy rainfall the obvious
crops for cultivation are rubber
and ‘rice. But forests yielding
timber were the main source of
revenue to the Company. Develop-
ment of these forests must be slow
and they do not provide for many

LORD LISTOWEL

immigrants — as British Hondu-
ras shows. The rice cultivation
of the territory is still exceedingly
primitive. But most West Indians,
as well as native cultivators,
would have to be taught modern
methods of rice cultivation and in
any case it is a large task to irri-
gate land and put it under rice.
The plans drawn up for approv-
al by the newly installed Secre-
tariat, for the development of
British North Borneo, deal mainly
with preliminaries. Communica-
tions in this large territory are al-
most entirely lacking. A road is
planned between one coast and



}



the other of the northern tip of
Borneo. The Colonial Develop- |
ment Corporation has taken over |
estates on the east coast, which’
were Japanese property, and
plans to cultivate manila hemp.
The Governor of North Borneo, in
an article — not an official report
—has written “particular atten-
tion has been paid to the medical
and educational
North Borneo. Malnutrition and
the Japanese occupation greatly
reduced the standards of health....
one serious obstacle to develop-
ment is the fact that the present
standard of education is very low
indeed.” Before immigrants could
be absorbed much of this prelim-
inary work would have to be com-
pleted.

Lord Listowel argued that the
alternative source of immigrants
to Borneo would be the Chinese of
Malay or Singapore, or indeed
from China itself, and the Indo-
nesians from Java. His argument
against encouraging Chinese im-
migrants was that, inevitably, they |
would bring the infiltration of}
Communism to Borneo. He sug-

the Indonesian Federal Republic
would he welcome — but it is
known that within Indonesia there
are many islands that its own

surplus population from Java.
After studying the condition of
the newly acquired British Crown
Colony of North Borneo it seems |
that Lord Listowel made his sug-|
gestion that West Indians should
migrate there more with the inter-

It is certainly true that Borneo
needs settlers, but it is also true
that Borneo needs slow and ex-
pensive development, education-
ally and materially, before it could
easily absorb. settlers.

Lord Listowel’s suggestion
aroused curiosity among British
M.P.’s_interested in the West In-
dies and they are planning to put
some questions to the Colonial
Secretary. An enquiry is to be
made in Borneo and this writer
hopes to have information avail-
able from the strange water
-locked town of Jesselton, the
capital of North Borneo, within a
few weeks,

Nearly all the delay on death
has been applied during the last
60 years . The civilised Roman
could expect little longer life
than the near-animal Neander-
thal. And because of overcrowd-
ing in insanitary cities the Vic-
torian baby faced a_ slightly
shorter average life than ‘the
youhgster born jn_ medieval
times. ‘
The study of ancient tombs
and skeletons suggests that only
recently have women begun to

live longer than men. More
primitive males overworked
their womenfolk to an earlier
death.

Puppy Deafness

ALL PUPPIES are born

blind, but did you know they
are also bor deaf? I did not.
Neither did the experts at the
Kennel Club or any of the vet-
erinary surgeons I have con-
sulted.

The canals leading from the
outside ears to the eardrums are
tightly closed until the puppy is
about 18 days old, scientists re-
port. So the newly born pup
must be at least as hard of hear-
ing as you are when you put your
fingers in your ears.

Rheumatism Drug

* A POSSIBLE answer to the
tragic shortage of Compound
E—the drug which can clear up
the symptoms of the worst forms
of rheumatism—has been dis-
covered by a Swedish doctor,
The body will produce its own

lated by a pea-sized gland called
the pituitary, which is located
underneath the brain.

Facing Cold

THE ARGUMENT whether

southerners who move north
ever become acclimatised to the
cold or not has been finally set-
tled by experiments carried out
at Cambridge University.

Tests on six young sailors, who
volunteered to live in a room
kept near freezing-point, showed
that some aeclimatisation occurs
within three days. The blood
thickens, and its rate of flow
through the skin speeds up con-
siderably.

lights up the retina, the eyes’ sen-

To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—“The system is wrong.”
How delightful it is to find that
sentence coming back into use
after a decade or so of time.

But that is not the point of
my letter—to write a panegyric
of the past. No, I am quoting
from “The Lancet” on Hospital
Finance and as a taxpayer I
offer the following extracts for
consideration by those who allo-
cate the spending of the taxes.

The trouble is that the system
is wrong, and that, despite the
rigidity which destroys the
power to spend on the round-
abouts what is saved on the
swings, the money continues to
pour out and hospital costs to
rene Prac tos its finger

“The haspital service repre-
sents’ a notable innovation in
social. affairs. In it, financial and
managerial responsibility are
divorced. The provision of funds

is centralized, so that all hospitals
can. enjoy financial security,
while management is entrusted

to lecal committees, co-ordinated
by regional boards, in order to
preserve that fiexibility and local

touch essential for the welfare
of patients and the professional
freedom of doctors. For this
-novel experiment to work, the
hospital management committee,
subject to any necessary control
of its regional board, must be in
a position to count on a total
annual sum, deemed adequate
for its needs, which it is free to
spend or save as it thinks fit.
This is not what is happening
- » + . The present makeshift
methods were perhaps inevitable
in the initial stages of a great
social experiment. Their con-
tinuance may well wreck an
experiment in the delegated man-
agement of a State _ service
which was launched with the
highest hopes’.

Referring to the lack of a cost-
ing system, this editorial argued
that such a system is an essential
prerequisite to the delegation of
spending power to match the
delegation of administrative re-
sponsibility. In the 20th report
of the Select Committee on the
Estimates we have recently been
told that something is in fact
being done about a costing sys-
*tem. So far so good. But such

a system by itself will not take
us “far; with it must be coupled
the bold experiment in delegation
of financial responsibility for
which the “Times” called

The question to which Parlia-
ment should address itself is
surely, what substantial reason
is there why the principle of
round-sum allocations should not
be adopted?

It sometimes seems that the
financial authorities concerned
are strangely blind to the nature
of hospital finance. What they
seem to miss is the fact that in
any hospital, at any time and any
place, a really strong case can
be put up for additional expen-
diture; and that, in the present
state of society, against this
advocacy no barrier erected by
a lay authority, not even Parlia-
ment itself, can long prove
effective if the question is merely
one of .voting the money. There
is, of course, nothing new about

this; but before nationalisation
each hospital was a unit—or in
the case of the local-authority
hospitals part of the relatively

small unit for limited finances—

where ohe medical need clashed
with another, and a great many,
as it were, cancelled eaeh other
cut. The financial authorities do
rot seem to have seen that it is
to their own great advantage to
grant the degree of _delegation
here advocated; as soon as they
Co, projects for expenditure will,
for the first time since the
appointed day, be fully exposed
to rigorous and informed medical
criticism. One claim will have
to be compared with another, and
some of them will look less con-
vincing than they do today.

A system based on round-sum

allocations ‘would not’ only save’

the Treasury a large part of ‘h
steadily mounting bill, but would,
at the same time, rescue the
hospitals from the strait-jacket
into which they are now being
gradually forced. To put it
shortly, the hospitals
fundamentalty rather have less
money, and be free to spend it
as they liked, than have to con-
form

to a rigid “approved
budget” and make every addi-
tional item they need the subject

of an addition to estimates liable
to be pruned from above. Doubt-

would,

difficult to introduce such a
system right away on the
appointed day; but with the

knowledge of what the hospitals
lapk like costing under the new
regime it should be practical

can, but not ignoring historic
circumstances, and retain a mod-

A little too drastic, does it
sound? Perhaps so; perhaps for
quite a long while all sorts of
exceptions would have to

surely as right as the principles

New Hospital Posts

In Accordance With Hallinan Report

THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY yesterday passed a Reso-
lution creating new posts afid increasing the salaries of
present posts at the General Hospital in accordance with
recommendations in the Hallinan Report on the Hospi-
tal. The Resolution approves the Civil Establishment
(General Amendment) No. 5 Order.

they would not have any Resident

was no Medical Superintendent.
If the resolution was passed, they
would be able to advertise abroad
for people to fill those posts.

sage informing the House what re-
commendations were to be imple-
mented, and what would be post-
poned.

He said that Barbados, unlike
other countries, had one hospital
and one Radiologist, and he felt
that there was need for another
when they considered that there
were 192,000 people in the island.

It was not sufficient to ask peo-
ple who must have certain treat-

Specialists

He said that when they came
to pay sp€cialists for the treat-
ment of the health of the people,
they must pay them good salar-
ies. If they wanted trained spec-
ialists to handle the people who
were suffering in the country, they
had to keep abreast of other
countries.

Mr. J. H. Wilkinson (E) sup-
ported the remarks of the last
speaker. He said that they on that
side of the table sympathised
with the honourable senior mem-
ber for St. Thomas and he ap-
preciated that the position was
very urgent. Like the honourable
senior member for the City, he
would vote for the resolution, but
with great reluctance.

The honourable member who
introduced the resolution said
that it was a matter of urgency,
but when it came to the Hospital
and sickness, they must pay due
regard to salaries and increase
them. He did not agree with

colleague that if | these
were increased, they

would have to increase salaries

throughout the service.

Urgent Matter

The House went into Committee
on the Resolution, Mr. E. K, Wal-
cott recalled that Dr. Cummins had
said that the matter was an urgent
one, But on turning a leaf he had
discovered that the Order had
been made on April 27, and there
had been a meeting of the House
since then. There should therefore
be some explanation why it had
not been on the table of the House
before if it was so urgent.

Mr. E. K. Walcott (E) going
through the salaries proposed in
in the Resolution said it was
the first attack on Commissioner
Adams’ Report.

They could not break the line in
one part of the Service, without
feeling the repercussions in other
parts. The moment they said that
a medical officer should be paid
such and such a salary—which he
felt was somewhat high—it would
mean that they would have to
fall into line where other special- _his
ist officers in the Cvil Service were
concerned. *

Mr. Ex D. Mottley (E) said he

did not agree that the salary of
the medical officers was too high,

He looked upon this matter as
a question of life and death ard

taking things generally. He would
have blamed the Government if,
knowing that the situation at the
hospital was serious, they had not
taken immediate steps to remedy
it. As it was, he commended the
Government for the action they
had’ taken.

He knew that the increases of
salaries to some honourable mem-
bers might be too anne at he

sas. GUG aid asrea wuewher the
present accommodation at the
Hospital was sucn .nat there was
a requirement of seven resident
medical officers.

Mr. Dowding (E) said that as he
had done on previous occasions,
he would again do, object strongly
on any hapnazara Resolution being
put, before the House.

No! Gifted

All of them were not gifted with
that mentality or intelligence that
they would know. then all the
facts of Dr. Hallinan’s report.
Legislation of that kind needed
time and consideration, and their
memory should be re-awakened.

During their last session that
procedure had been adopted on
numerous occasions, and he
thought it to be the correct pro-
cedure. Of course, he said, they
would arise emergencies, but he
did not think the matter under
discussion could be termed such.

He felt that mere increases of
salaries on the hospital staff
would not stave off the disturbed
situation as was then in existence.

Foreign Experts

They were much too eager to
bring people from abroad into the
island to make investigations into
matters which they knew much
more about than the people. If
the report had been made by a
locally appointed committee, with
probably a member of the Gov-
ernment and one of the Executive
as observers, he thought there
would not have been the cause for
hurry as there was then.

He hoped, however, that the
Honourable Senior Member for St.
Thomas in whom the members on
that side of the House placed a
great deal of confidence, would go
into the matter very carefully and
reply before they voted.

Laymen

Mr. Lewis (L) said that he had
not been in the island when the
Commissioner had been appointed
to investigate the hospital, but he
felt that a useful purpose would
have been served ifisome laymen
had been included.

He was not one of those who
felt that everything should be
divorced from politics. Soon poli-
ticians had to assume ministerial
status and run the island. It was
only after experience that they
could do so properly, Members
of Government would be able to
speak with more authority than
they did then, and it was a stupid
idea to hold that politics corrupt-
ed everything.

he honourable member who
had just sat down had said that
politicians should be included in
the commission and had then
talked about a strong Board which
was free from politics as being
the best means of running the
hospital. The statements wére not
reconcilable.

Not Help Materially

He was among those who felt
that an increase in salary would
not help matters materially. They
could not have professional people
going to work at the hospital and
being treated in such a way that
their contracts would terminate
without the necessary explana-
tion but only given a subtle state-
ment which could only be
appreciated by a crooked mind.

They had to be careful what
they were doing in their efforts
of assisting the hospital to become
efficient. They had undertaken
the training of 66 nurses but he
wondered whether _ there
accommodation for them at the
hospital. He wanted to know
what arrangements had _ been
made to accommodate such an
increase of staff.

Mr. Lewis pointed out that the
non-payment of rent was for
people with whom contracts had
been signed and he did not see
they could tell such to pay rent
after the contract.

Urgent, Desperate

Dr. Cummins (L) said that
the situation had been an urgent
and desperate one and they had
had to hurry down the Resolu-
tion, especially as the house might
be adjourned for three weeks,
and they wanted to be able to
advertise for the posts.

The medical officers were then
getting £572 a year, but in Trini-
dad medical officers’ salarigs were
much higher. They could not
expect to keep such men in Bar-
bad6s with Trinidad next door
paying better salaries, In Barba-
dos, too, unlike Trinidad, there
was no Service and the lack of
Service served to decrease the
enthusiasm of medical men.

It had happened a short while
ago that two young furgeons were
kept on night duty for about /a
year. That, they had-to admit
was rather nerve racking. They
hopped that the increase in staff
and salary would reduce dissatis-
faction at the hospital to a mini-
mum,

Shops Selling Fresh

Fruit Can

—Resolves House Yesterday

THE HOUSE CF ASSEMBLY yesterday passed a Reso-
lution sanctioning an Order under the Shop Closing Act,
exempting from closing,shops engaged in the selling ot fresh
fruit, rresh vegetables and handicrafts of B.W.I. origin.

Cummins

Dr. H. G. moved the
passing of the Resolution. He said
that representation had been made
to the Government by the Domin-
ica and St. Lucia Marketing Agen-
cy as to the exemption of the
shops mentioned. This was ap-
proved of by the Labour Com-
missioner and Government had
concurred. As a result the pres-
ent Resolution was before the
House. He begged to move that
it be passed,

Mr. F. L. Walcott seconded,

Mr. J. H. Wilkinson said that it
was going to take a lot of detec-
tive work to see that the Order
was carried out, and that the op-
portunity was not taken to sell
other things besides those named.
There were a good many sfops
which sold these articles along
with other things and a great
deal of vigilance would therefore
be needed to see that the law wa:
net broken, ;

Saw The Necessity

Mr. Fred Goddard said that he
saw the necessity for the Resolu-
tion. There was nothing wrong
with it, but he would like to take
the opportunity to say that other
amendments might have been
made at the same time.

Some day Christmas was going
to fall on a Friday, and stores in
Bridgetown would have been
cléSed half day on the preceding
Thursday. When this happened it
would go down in history that
Barbados was the only place in
the world to close its shopping
facilities to the public on the day
before Christmas.

In many countries shops were
opened on such an_ occasion
until a late hour for the benefit
of the public. This was a matter
that apparently no one thought
about when the Shop Closing Act
was passed, Three or four years
had passed, and nothing had been
done about it. He was sure that
in the very near future ey
would be faced with the predic-
ament to which he was drawing
their attention.

Certain Rights

He understood that the Labour
Commissioner had certain rights
to authorise the opening of shops
on special occasions. Applications,
however, had been made to him
by one or two agents and he had
turned them down, saying that he
had no authority to grant their
request,

Whether he did not know his
powers or the legal set-up was
somewhat cloudy, he (Mr. God-
dard) did not know, but he did
think that some attention should
be paid to that if the shopping
public were not to suffer very
severely one of these days.

Mr. L. E. Smith said that he
wanted to support the remarks of
the last speaker. When they had
passed the Shop Closing Act some
four years ago, it was in all good
faith.

Mr. Garner made the motion
which was seconded by Mr ti
J. E. T. Brancker.

Mr. H. A. Dowding said that

study and amenament to the Shop
Closing Act. He was supporting |

Wl. PLAY
YORKSHIRE
TODAY

AFTER some sodden play at
Worcester in their opening game
which petéred out in a no de-
cision, the West Indies will today
engage Yorksmire in the second
big fixture,

‘Yhere is a tradition attached to
this game, and next to winning a
Test match touring teams always
attach the utmost importance to
their performance against this
northern county—the county of
dour fighters. Two of England’s
greatest left handers — Leyland
and Verity, and the almost legend-
ary name of Lord Hawke come to
the mind at mention of this York-
shire game, and today’s matgh
weather permitting—will be con-
tested no less keenly than any of
the previous six.

Every West Indies team to
visit England had a fixcure
with Yorkshire with the ex-
ception of the 1923 side. But
to make up for this the 1928
team met the county twice.

Qf the six games played York-
shire won 2. the West Indies 1, and
three had to be abandoned owing
to rain. 2 =~

First Game

In the West Indies first visit te
England only 25 minutes play was
possible in their match with York-
shire, during which the homesters
scored 23 runs without loss. Then
rain endéd the match.

Six years later, on their second
visit, the West Indies won this fix-
ture in fine style. Batting first,
they scored 270 of which L, S.
Constantine, worthy father of his
famous son Learie, made 79, and
Ollie Layne 63. Yorkshire replied
with only 50, thanks to some
splendid bowling by Ollivierre of
St. Vineént who took 7 wickets for
23 runs in 12 overs.

Percy Goodman with 102 not out
led the W.I. batsmen to score 305
for 6 wickets declared. Goodman
hit 16 fours in an hour and a half
at Uge crease.

Yorkshire were 526 behind
but tried gallantly and were
only able to get 263. D. Den-
ton made 112 of this total, and
his century along with Good-
man’s are the only three fig-
ure innings ever to be played
in any_of these games.

The West Indies thus won by
253 runs, Ollivierre taking 4
wickets for 103 in the County’s
second in

1933, Yorkshire scored 240 (Con-
stantine 5 for 40). Verity ran
ee the visitors seins 7 for

, and they were all out for 115.

Yorkshire’s second venture yield-

ed 248 and the West Indies were
set 278 to win. Verity again took
7 wickets, and the West Indies

had lost a second time.
. The West Indies-Yorkshire fix-
ture in 1939 was the eighteenth on
the card, and this too was aban-
doned through rain.

est Indies scored 234 in their
fir: innings and 116 for 6
wickets.

Yorkshire were all out for
in their first innings.

Bertie Clarke took 5 for 49, and
Constantine 5 for 28.

Today our boys will come up
against Len Hutton, England’s No.
1, Norman Yardley, England’s
Test Captain, and perhaps Gerald
Smithson and Wardle whom we
savy down here with the M.C.C. in
1948.

We hope the weather will be
kinder at Bradford, than at Wor-
cester, and that the West Indies
will have a good chance to draw
level with the county’s two vic-
tories.

A TOUGH DAY AT THE

OFFICE! I DO ENOUGH
RUSHING AROUND! LET.
ME RELAX;

MOVIE FOR HIM=
BUT et

WITH THE INVITATION:
THATS DIFFERENT !

So much time was lost throusa
bad weather at Worcester that
the chief purposes servéd by the
two and. three quarter hours
play on the last day of the West
Indies opening first class match
of the tour were in providing
practice for the players and a
reward for some 1,500 spéctators.

Play was delayed because 0
the wet state of the pitch uni!
after lunch. The West Indies
again showed their eagerness 1)
play whenever humanly possible
but the ground was so treache:-
ous that John Goddard, who de-
clared at the overnight total, did
not risk calling upon his fast
bowlers, Hines Johnson and Prior
ones.

“Tt is doubtful whether Johnsol
would have bowled in any case
as he was suffering from slight
stomach trouble and after an
hour's play he left the field.
Not until towards the end of

the day did any of the five
bowlers tried — Gerry Gomez,
Frank Worrell, John Goddard,

Sonny Ramadhin and Jeff Stoll-

meyer—mauke the ball turn othei
than very slowly. Because of this
no useful opinion could be form-
ed of the likely strength of this
ysection on their attack. Though

he sun shone warmly and the
ielding side did not extend them-
elvés, Worcestershire never batted
s freely as might have been _éx-
acted. Compared with the West
adies on Saturday most of the

County players seemed leaden,
Kenyon, who opened his score
with a six, and Cooper, made 71

for the first wicket, but the batting
as a whole was uninspired. Wor-
cestershire finished 115 runs be-
hind with four wickets down,

The question of sugar is of such vital importance to the future of the West Indies that it is essential that a united front be presented when dealing with the British Government. All parties are agreed that the terms offered by the British Government are not acceptable. It is therefore regrettable that the Barbados delegation does not include a member of the Opposition from the House of Assembly. Dr. Cummins is a respected member of the General Assembly but his association with sugar has not been as intimate as Others who would surely have r.een available. Mr. J. H. Wilkinson was the obvious choice to accompany Mr. Adams. Leader of the Opposition, and a man who has interests in the Sugar Industry and with connections in England. Mr. Wilkinson would undoubtedly have been a most ireful member of such a delegation. Too often are important matters on which the future of the island depends handled on a parly basis. To handle a matter such as sugar on such a basis does not augur well for the success of the negotiations now underway. The British Government has already done its utmost to discourage the delegation and have even gone to the extent of intimating that they will be wasting their lime by going to England. It is to be hoped that better counsels will prevail and that the Interests of these islands will not again be sacrificed in the interests of the British Consumer. The West Indies are united on thii matter. The conference held in Grenada can have left no doubt of that. If the reasonable claims of the West Indies are again Ignored the British Government will do so at the risk of alienating the goodwill of the peoples of this area. The colonies can no longer be ignored in this way. All the more surprising is it coming from a Socialist Administration. The standard of life of the workers of Britain cannot be maintained and increased at the expense of the standard of life of colonial workers. The future of the Empire is not so secure that statesmen can afford to adopt such an attitude. These islands have always been among the most loyal in the Empire but it is asking too much to expect this to continue when they see their vital interests ignored and their pleas for consideration receiving-scant attention. Although many may feel the Barbados delegation could be stronger, the thoughts and good wishes of all will be with the delegates as they leave to undertake the critical and important negotiations on which so much depends.

The exact pnrollcl would be the obence from West minuter at the same time of Mr. At t lev and Mr. Morrison in a Parliament where there was no Cabinet. j It Is obvious that a small House of Assembly with no clear majority cannot spare Its major political figures without seriously retarding the progress of necessary legislation.

The present makeshift methods were perhaps inevitable in the Initial stages of a great social experiment.

Referring to the lack of a costing system, this editorial argued that such a system Is an essential prerequisite to the delegation of spending power to match the delegation of administrate. < %  responsibility In the 20th report of the Select Committi-Estli III! h.iv ntl] told that something is in fact being done about a costing sys>tem.

It sometimes seems that the financial authorities concerned are strangely blind to the nature of hospital finance. What they seem to miss is the fact that in. any hospital, at any time and any place, a really strong case can be put up for additional expenditure; and that, in the present state of society. agati.i.t this advocacy no barrier erected by a lay authority, not even Parliament Itself, can long prove effective If the question is merely DM • 'f voting the money. There It, of count, noihiiiK new swoul this; but before nationa'isatlon each hospital was a unit—or in t of the local-authority hospitals part of Ihe small unit for limited I Wine* oho medical need clash.-d \. ith another, and a great many, at it were, cancelled cash other tut. The financial authorities do i ot seem to have seen that It is l i llieir own great advantage to i,i-ant the degree of _desttation here advocated; as soon as they < ii. protects for expenditure will. for the first time since the appointed day. be fully exposed to rigorous and informed medic il criticism. One claim will have to be compared with another, and some of them will look less convincing than they do today. A system based on round-sum allocations would not only save the Treasury a large part of • steadily mounting bill, but would, at the same time, rescue the hospitals from the stralt-)acket Into which they are now being gradually forced. To put it shortly, the hospitals would fundamental*^ rather have le*s money, and be free to spend It as they liked, than have to conform to a rigid "approved budget" and make every additional item they need the subject of an addition to tttttnasta liable to be pruned from above Doubtless, it would have been too difficult to introduce such a system right away on the appointed day; but with the knowledge of what the hospitnl< Iqpk like coating under the new NPM it should be practhal politics to say to each regional hospital board something Ilk* this. "Your budget for the next year (or three years, or five years, as the case may be) will be lix-expecting only that we will reimburse you for excesses brought about by circumstances. outside your control, such as nationally agreed scales of salaries, or changes in the price level Divide it up among your hospitals as rationally as you can. but not ignoring histori • circumstances, and retain a modest pool at your own disposal fo. helping out where a hospital makes a good case for something extra. Meanwhile wc shall dc our best to get on with a costing system so that as the month to "by you ma/ have data t.. idp you in deciding, by reference to comparative statistics. which hospital budget, will have to be reduced next time, and whicli can be allowed a tittle more."
